The QUT Centre for Robotics builds on a decade of investment at QUT in robotic research and translation which has been funded by QUT, Australian Research Council, Queensland Government, cooperative research centres and industry.

The centre:

  • is at the forefront of research and innovation in intelligent robotics
  • translates research into commercial and societal outcomes
  • leads education, training and development of talent to meet growing demands
  • provides leadership in technological policy development and societal debate.
